Senior Pictures with a Holiday theme? You bet! Welcome to shooting outdoors in the sweet town of Issaquah during the month of December (they always decorate SO cute during the Christmas season) This was my second time getting to photograph beautiful Sarah — this time in celebration of her her Kings High School School 2013 Senior Pictures. There wasn’t any snow, but Seattle was happy to deliver some sprinkles of rain…didn’t matter though…how adorable does she look with the twinkle-y lights!
We do a TON of business headshots here at Studio B and I typically wait to share samples from these shoots in January when everyone puts on their “New Year, New You” type of thinking but I just had so much fun during this photo shoot that I had to give you a sneak peek now. (Some of you might remember my client Patty from a couple of years ago when we featured her fantastic family photo shoot) Patty is the absolute definition of a modern business woman and she wanted to update her professional look so that it reflected her polished sense of style and outgoing personality. Prior to her photo shoot, this sharp lady did her research, culling samples and inspiration from both our Studio B Headshots website and some famous faces that we all know and love from TV & Film. (That is such a great idea by they way because even before clicking the first frame, we knew we were going for a fresh, glam, contemporary look.) Awesome tip for getting great headshots?…Get online and look at samples that you love! A great place to start is Google Images (type in the name of your favorite celebrity) or check out Pinterest…just do a search on Headshots.
So here’s a fresh spin on Christmas red and green and if this little angel doesn’t make you feel Merry & Bright, then nothing will this holiday season! We headed outside with three year old Maggie and her red lady bug tutu for a sweet photo shoot complete with a rainbow chandelier and and lots of giggles. (she’s laughing at her brothers just off camera and mugging behind me) The trick to pulling this off by the way is planning and shooting this type of session before we are covered in a foot of Seattle snow 🙂 (yes, I thought I’d go ahead and point out the obvious)
Hands down this has been my very favorite holiday family portrait season and the beautiful Momotyuk Family is going to be another illustration of why! First….LOVE FORMAL — bring on Louboutin, a gorgeous lace dress and a slick tux any day of the week! BUT I especially love formal attire when it comes with a flawless blend of warmth and light from the people wearing it. Meeting Bogdan and Lilia…you immediately understand how much they like one another (I get that the four children might have been a tip-off too 🙂 ) — there is such an obvious affection for not just each other but for their babes as well. Each member of the family had a chance to be in the spotlight and it was just fun to get to play during their relaxed photo shoot. YES, I said relaxed! The beauty of having your kids be ages 6-12 is that the grown-ups don’t have to break a sweat. (…A little something for all of you parents of young toddlers to look forward to, right?) We also added another one of my family favorites from their portrait session on our Facebook page here
Meet the Atkins Family! When we first scheduled this photo shoot, Mom’s hope was that we would have an opportunity to shoot outside. Seattle weather in December? Sketchy at best. But let’s just say, both of us dared to dream and Issaquah totally delivered! It was cold…but D-R-Y…so outside we trekked and got these super cute family portraits. You know what is always funny to me? The grown-up felt every bit of the nip in the air…Our young 14 month old toddler? All smiles, not phased a bit!
